Holy cow, that thing looks dangerous, I mean is that a bumble bee, it looks huge! Oh yeah and nice flower =)

author says:

Thank you EmiK )))
No, it's not a bumble bee, though it's dangerous for flowers, because this beetle is feeding on petals

It's a beetle, wow, first time I see a hairy beetle. Do you know what the name of it is? I want to read more about this amazing scary looking, petal devouring creature. =)

Fantastic macro! I too thought it a bee, but couldn't see wings, and was wondering, "Where's the beetle?" Great photo!

Thank you MossyB
